Snell says the market had record sales despite an hour-long internet outage on Saturday, caused when monsoon rains and lightning took out one of the market's main routers and forced organizers to reboot the system.

Snell says market workers had to switch to recording credit card information manually during the outage because their point-of-sale system was out of order.

According to its website, the International Folk Art Market ' Santa Fe celebrates the humanity of the handmade that empowers communities through monumental earnings.
